Sony’s Watchman!

Tonight is the Emmys, so it’s a perfect time to pay tribute to an important contribution to television, and by an “important contribution” I mean something that hardly anybody ever had because it cost the price of five healthy internal organs and the quality was slightly better than watching TV on a half-eaten discarded tater tot (not even a full potato, because I’m sure a full potato had better quality as a portable TV than the Sony Watchman).

The handheld TV was first put out by Panasonic in the 1970s, but I didn’t know that a handheld TV was possible until Sony introduced its Watchman to the world in the early 1980s, 1982 to be exact. The first Watchman was sold in Japan and it was grayscale only and its screen was 5 centimeters long. It cost around $500 at the time. Sony started selling it in Europe and North America two years later. Throughout the years, Sony added more features to the Watchman, like making it water resistant and giving it a color LCD display in 1990. But even though Sony continued to turn their Watchman into a technological wonder, it wasn’t enough and they stopped selling it in 2000.

Because of TV broadcasts going fully digital, the Sony Watchman is pretty much just a useless artifact today. Below is a beautiful short tribute to the TV wonder that boggled minds for a minute in the olden times:

Speaking of the olden times, in the late-80s, my mom dated a dude who had a Sony Watchman. He also had a cell phone and drove an ivory Cadillac. They ended up breaking up, but before they did, I dreamed that my mom would marry the rich dude and I’d make the brats at school slobber with jealousy as I showed them The Golden Girls¬†on my stepdaddy’s Sony Watchman. And yes, those brats would respond with, “You watch The Golden Girls? What a loser fairy, you are!
